Molly 5

I can't believe that it's been so long since I've blogged.  ARGH!  Again, it's not that I haven't come to visit it, cause my blog is the gateway to all of your blogs for me.  So I visit here every day and I go to visit all of you :)

I haven't been doing too much stitching, but I did get my Sunday stitching in.  So Molly is still spooky looking, but I hope by this Sunday she'll have her hair and she'll look more like a girl than a ghost.

I have to take a picture of the ornament that hubby and I picked up at the Stampede.  It's so cute.  I'll try to find a minute tomorrow to take a pic and upload it.  It's a little pig couple.  LOL  You'll love it when you see it, just like I did.

Tomorrow, we're getting the trailer ready for camping.  We are heading out for the long weekend and I can hardly wait.  Between work, and getting everything organized and sorted out for our trip to Hungary, we've been kind of been breezing by each other.  So this weekend is our time to sit back around a campfire and reconnect.  He'll do some fishing, I'll do some stitching or some reading, and I might even go out to catch a fish or two.  It should be good...I should say great!!!!  I'm really looking forward to getting away for the weekend.

Molly 4, June's reindeer, TUSAL

Lots to show today.  Got quite a bit of stitching time in on Sunday on Molly, so that makes me happy.  We went to our Hungarian Cultural Centre for thei annual summer picnic.  Which was great.  The food was yummy, and I was able to catch up with a couple of friends that I hadn't seen in a while (Hi ladies!!....they're stitcher's too) we watched some of the World cup Final there.  and then Mom started to get a little uncomfortable so we came home, and I settled in with Molly.  I know that she still has that ghostly hand lingering on her dress, I think that will be my goal for next week, so give her that hand and a head. 

I finally finished my June reindeer ornament, this was the one that proved to be more of a project than I had anticipated it to be. It's stitched over 1 so I'm happy with it, but not as happy as I thought I would be.  I don't know why, but oh well, it's done and it'll be finished and go on my tree.  :)

And finally the TUSAL that is a few days overdue.  But not as overdue as last month.  So I feel like I'm still ahead of the game.  And yes Kati, that is a little elfen troll whom I just adore.  She was a little dark last month so I took another pic of her this month.  I love that she's a little nasty and is sticking out her tongue.

So tonight I am hoping to get some stitching done on The Song They Sang, and then tomorrow hubby and I are going to head down to the Calgary Stampede.  Do some eating, so stolling around looking at the crafts at the Western Showcase, and get our ornament for this year.  :)

Molly 3

Well I haven't gotten much Sunday SAL stitching done, nor much stitching on anything else for that matter in the last couple of weeks.  We've been  busy at work, and then there always seems to be something to do or something that needs to get done, so it doesn't leave much time for stitching.  We went camping for the long weekend, which was WONDERFUL!  Our first camping weekend of the season, the weather has been so iffy that it's always hard to plan ahead, but we managed to get out this last weekend and it was lovely!  I even took my stitching with me, but it didn't even leave the bag.  So maybe next time.  It was just so good to sit and relax by the lake. ahhhhhhh! 

I did manage to get a bit done though.  So here's Molly.  It's our SAL with Kati.  She is stitching leaps and bounds on her's....well done K!

It's too late now to stitch, but tomorrow I think I'm going to come home, do what I need to do quickly and then settle in front of the tv and stitch all evening tomorrow.  On what I'm not sure.  I've got an over 1 reindeer ornie that I've started, which is proving to be a bigger project than it looked to be in the first place.  And I also want to get back to The Song They Sang.  So it'll be a coin toss tomorrow.
